Artist: Willy Mason
Track: Just a Fly
Album: Where The Humans Eat
Date: 20th May 2005
Tabbed by: Hosho & The_ashtraygirl

Special Thanks to The_ashtraygirl who provided a starting point for me. Her tab is right
next to mine if you wanna take a look. ^^

I'm not certain this is right I'm afraid, but it's as close as I can get. The major
difference between this version and the_ashtraygirl's, aside from the strum patter
(which you really, REALLY should get from the track as i've almost certainly got it
wrong) is the G chord, which I'm playing in E shape barred at the 3rd fret. That seems
to make the chorus make more sense. Corrections are welcomed.

Chords Used
===========

   C  Am   G    Dm7(?) Cmaj7

Intro/Verse
===========

for the 4th bar just play our G chord, lift your pinky finger for the 3rd beat, hit the 
note with your thumb then pull everything off, thumb open D and hammer your middle 
to the 2nd fret, then start right over again.

    C                Am                G (see above)

=============================================================
Lyrics/Chords below taken directly from the_ashtraygirl's tab
=============================================================


C
That's alright, that's okay
Am
I can wait, you're still a fly
G
Eating through, trying to live within the space you're in

C
But still, you're just a kid
Am                  G
You shouldn't read Dostoevsky at your age
C
That and nicotine will make you pale and lean
Am
And twist your face like Mr. Grays
                G
Though it just manifests in paintings that you make
C
Or else your eyes will stay the same
Am                        G
Are you that hungry for a change?

Chorus
======

First off, the last bar of the Verse will change slightly going into the chorus. New tab 
as follows. (this is why you're playing a barred G instead of the usual G shape.)

   G
e|-----------------|
b|-------3---------|
G|-------4---------|
D|---5---5---3-----|
A|---------------5-|
E|-3---3---3---3---|

And the actual chorus. (not sure how to denote this in tab, basically a slide in between 
listen to the track if you're not sure what i mean) Occasionally towards the end Willy
the chorus just a little by hammering onto the 1st fret on the B string during the 2nd
bar in the sequence, worth a try if you want to spice things up a little.

e|-----------------|----------------|
b|-----------------|----------------|
G|-----0-----0-----|----0-----0-----|
D|---3-----3-------|--2-----2-----2-|
A|-5-----5-----5--5>3-----3-----3---|
E|-----------------|----------------|
                        You're..


Dm7
You're waking up
Cmaj7
You're flying out
Dm7
The door has sprung loose
Cmaj7
Don't forget me

The "I wrote this to annoy Hosho" bit at the end
================================================

I swear Willy only put this part in to make my job more difficult.. ^.^;

   Em                F#m
e|-----------------|----------------|
b|-----------------|----------------|
G|-----------------|----------------|
D|---2---2---2---4-|---4---4---4----|
A|-----------------|----------------|
E|-0---0---0---0---|-2---2---2---2--|

   G

b|-----------------|----------------|
G|-----------------|----------------|
D|---5---5---5---5-|---5---5---5----|
A|-----------------|----------------|
E|-3---3---3---3---|-3---3---3---3--|
   Then it came and rained on..


Then it came and rained on down, from the sky and onto my head
I tried to think but it was too fast, so I just said anything that came (at last)

Play the chorus one last time and yer done.

hi hosho,
thanks for posting your version of 'still a fly'. I'll admit, it's better than mine ;)
I gave you 5 stars.. that's what a nice person i am!
Could you try to tab 'hard hand to hold' (by willy mason)too? At least, if you have time. I gave it a try myself, but I got stuck..
